REBEL WILSON Recalls Her First Encounter With Russell Crowe


If there’s one person you don’t want to get angry – especially when he’s about to have a meal – it’s Russell Crowe. Funny woman Rebel Wilson recently recalled the first time she tried to meet Nicole Kidman while she was having dinner with Russell. And unfortunately it didn’t turn out the way Rebel expected! Here’s what we’re reading:

During a chat on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” last night, the brassy comedienne explained how she won the Nicole Kidman Scholarship while studying acting at the Australian Theater for Young People.

“Nicole paid for everything!” Wilson, 27, exclaimed. “An apartment, going to see Broadway shows…she doesn’t know about that.”

When Leno asked if she ever thanked Kidman, Wilson replied, “One time in Sydney I saw her having dinner with Russell Crowe and I go, “Ok. Now’s my chance. I’m going to say thank you. But before I could say anything Russell Crowe just turns to me and says, ‘F–k off!’ just put my head down and walked away.”

Poor Rebel! Better luck next time!
